Why You Should Use Certified Mail
Sending mail through the traditional mail has been a reliable system for sending letters and parcels and for passing communication from one party to another but has not been without its faults and shortcomings. Occurrences of letters not arriving to the intended receiver and parcels getting lost halfway through the journey to the intended receiver are complaints that have been there since the conception of the traditional mailing service. Certified mail is to a large extent similar to the traditional mail of sending letters and parcels to the post office but is also at the same time and improved version of the traditional mailing service.
Certified mail was created to address the shortcomings of the traditional mailing system specifically, the idea of letters not getting to the intended recipient and parcels disappearing halfway through transit to the people that they were being sent to. To this commonly asked question, as to how certified mail resolves the issues that have been raised in response to the traditional mailing system is that certified mail uses a unique number tracking system whereby every letter that is sent and every parcel that is sent is given a unique number that is used to track the letter and track the parcel through the period of time that the letter of the parcel will be in transit. The unique number attached to the letter or attached to the parcel is then used to monitor the letter and to also monitor the parcel through the entire time that the parcel or the letter is in transit. The deliveryman upon successfully delivering the letter or the parcel to the intended receiver is required to have the receiver signed and acknowledged that they have received the letter of the parcel, also note down the date and time at the receiver received the letter or the parcel and carry this information back to the sender of the letter or the parcel.
The information noted down by the deliveryman upon delivering the letter of the parcel, is brought back to the sender of the letter hence answering to this commonly asked question of how they would know that the letter order the parcel arrived to its intended destination or its intended receiver. If for one reason or another recipient of the letter of the parcel did not want the sender to know that they had received the parcel for the letter, the information that was collected by the deliveryman upon successfully delivering the letter or a parcel to the recipient serves as good evidence and proof that the letter was delivered and that the recipient actually received and signed for having received the letter or parcel.
The certified mail system offers better security for the letters and parcel sent through it and answers to this commonly asked question of how secure and safe letters and parcels are giving the transit process.
